    Pretty much.

    And the penultimate story of Slott's run (with Norman becoming Red Goblin).

    In fairness, the last one was more of an unconventional team-up with Spider-Man and Green Goblin teaming up against a fusion of two of the most acclaimed Spider-Man stories ever, with a Sin-Eater possessed Juggernaut.

    Wasn't Sandman brainwashed by Wizard back during the 1998 renumbering?

    That revelation came later, and they didn't do much with it.

    They kind of switched to the idea that there was always something wrong with Flint Marko, so that even if the Wizard brainwashed him he could have reacted to it differently.

    Speaking of that last part, considering that his time as Ravencroft's head was masterminded by a clandestine organization called J.A.N.U.S. that cleaned him up reputationally and perhaps psychologically after Absolute Carnage, I'm still wondering whatever became of that relationship after he was forcibly reformed by getting his sins shotgun-blasted out of him.

    I mean, in Normanís case he didnít even turn himself around because of it being something he wanted but because the evil was literally shot out of him. The whole thing was always a forced gimmick rather than actual character evolution. While people seem to have liked it, Iíve always hated it because of the fact that nothing of it was earned and everyone involved just ignored that it happened because of supernatural means.

    Let’s be real, Norman’s too iconic of a villain to ever stay as a good guy for long. That’s why I was never a fan of the good guy Norman plot. Because it was always gonna amount to nothing.

    Norman as a good guy was copying what Dan Slott did with Otto. Peter has two arch enemies: Norman and Otto, everyone knows that they somehow, some way they would return to being villains. Only differences. 1: Otto was more of an original idea. 2: Otto is more sympathetic then Norman because: 1: He did not mess up his family like Norman did. 2: Otto tried to do good. Norman had his sins taken away.

    Given how Doc Ocks return hadn't lead to anything new and in fact they're bringing back superior, I wouldn't hold my breath. Maybe one of the twists is that it won't be Norman somehow....still not holding my breath. For every time I've complained about Marvel doing something like this, the only time they've surprised me was with Venom. Thought going back to Eddie would lead to same old same old and it totally didn't.

    Hopefully Peter will end up with a sizeable share of stock in OsCorp, gifted by Norman before the madness takes over his mind again.
    Protect the stock with your life, Peter. Start building some secret Spider-Hideouts in parts of New York state.

    I have an idea: A place outside of Hendersonville, NC. The name? Bat cave ( I am dead serious this tiny village exists ( I was there over 1,000 times).

    I know it's inevitable, but I wanted Norman Osborn to stay a good guy. It's important for all the times Spider-Man saves the bad guy's life that it can lead to good things.
    I wasnít on board with Normanís redemption arc at first, but Iíve come around to think itís literally the only positive thatís come out of the Wells run. It was an interesting take at least, more so than his umpteenth revenge scheme. Now we are going to back to the boring status quo. Peter should have let Chasm kill him.

    Ever since that happened, whenever Sandman appears he either seems to be psychologically messed up, or a verrrrry reluctant “bad guy.” Once these villains like Sandman and Doc Ock go good, Marvel finds it difficult to put the toothpaste back in the tube when it’s time to make them bad again.
